herd immunity

i am fascinated
by kashmiri saffron
the delicate
purple flowers
the strands of red
the dry lands
at the feet of
the himalayas
the struggles
with global warming.

whole cultures
have been radically
altered as the
world changes
around them
for all of our
technological leaps
we seem to fall
farther behind
at being human beings.

soon things taken
for granted now
will be myths
spoken wistfully
by the old and dying
it’s a shame
that the world didn’t
develop herd immunity
from the plague
called humanity.
